Saturday night, the boys in blue were victorious once again as they played on their home turf, through a cloudy but beautiful evening at Yankee stadium. Orlando FC could not even put up a fight as the end result was a 3-0 defeat. Orlando FC might have returned home with heavy hearts, but the boys in blue kicked up their momentum once again. One thing that was different during the match was the absence of David Villa.

When NYCFC played the Lions back in March, Villa was left out of the starting line-up, due to a calf injury, but Villa being left out of the line-up this time came as a bit of a surprise. Last night a healthy Villa was left out of the starting line-up and Coach Vieira had a few things to say about it.

“Top players will never accept being on the bench,” coach Vieira explained. “It’s why they had the career they had. I think I have a really good relationship with David, we talk a lot and as a coach, I have to think about the team first before thinking about the individual.It’s a tough decision, but this is part of my job and David, Maxime, and all the players that are on the bench are not happy to be on the bench. I will be upset if I find out someone on the bench is really happy.”

Ismael Tajouri Shradi had a great game as he Scored two out of the three goals of the night. He started with his goal in the 35th minute when he took a swift pass from Anton Tinnerholm, to send the ball inside the far post. After the first goal the lions tried to catch up but were unsuccessful. Tajouri produced his 2nd goal of the night in the 79th minute after maneuvering a free kick through a few defenders.

Maxi Moralez sealed the deal with the last goal of the night, in the final minutes of the match. The boys in blue now remain invictus in all of their home games. They face-off against their rivals, the NY Red bulls on Wednesday, June 6, before returning to their home turf for another home game next Saturday.
